Summer Camp cocktail with toasted marshmallows

Summer Camp Smoky Rob Roy Riff

This riff on the Rob Roy captures the nostalgic feel of cool mountain air and roasting marshmallows around a campfire at dusk – a cocktail that’s sure to have you trekking back for s’more. Lapsang Souchong tea adds an earthy, smoked element to bittersweet & spicy Vya Sweet Vermouth; flavors of warm embers that bring the toasty-sweet perfection of marshmallow-infused scotch to life on the palate. Created by Derek Brown, The Columbia Room, Washington D.C.
